Aimee Teegarden Biography
She knew from a very early age she wanted to be an actress/model but her parents were determined she would not enter the profession too early.
So when Aimee Teegarden asked them if she could have acting lessons at the age of 5-years-old they said no. Instead they put her into sports, mostly baseball and basketball, which she loves almost as much as her film and television work.
At the age of 10-years-old she was contacted by an acting school and she asked her parents to sign her up. This time they agreed and enrolled her in a few acting classes.
Shortly after joining she achieved her dream and got an agent who started to send her to auditions. This led her to appear in advertising campaigns for Old Navy, Tommy Hilfiger, Alltel, Hollister and YMI Jeans. She made several television appearances including a spot in the Disney Channel's "Hannah Montana".
She was born on October 10th 1988 in Downey, California, a suburb of Los Angeles and she gets back there whenever she can.
She is involved with her local community as she has been a member of Job's Daughters International Downey Bethel in Southern California from a very young age. This is a Masonic youth organisation for women from 10-20 which focuses on the Bible, but celebrates many religions and cultures. It raises funds and helps out various charities.
Teegarden is also a past Sweetheart of the Walt Disney Chapter Order of De Morley, which is another Masonic Youth Group geared towards young men.
Having made her debut in a short film, in 2004 she got the role of Elenore Dare in "For Sale by Owner" and she was Tracy in "Call of the Wild" in 2009.
On April 24th 2007 during the "Miss Teen USA 07" Pageant she posed the question "Recent polls have shown a fifth of Americans can't locate the United States on a world map. Why do you think that is?" It brought an infamously rambling, nonsensical reply from fellow contestant Caitlin Upton.
Teegarden is a very sporty person and loves all types of sport. Besides basketball and baseball she loves soccer, lacrosse, snowboarding, rock climbing, bowling and her favourite surfing.
She grew up with her parents and brother and lots of pets but the love of her life now is her dog Gismo.
In 2010 she played Nicole in "Beautiful Wave" and she was one of the notable female actresses who was asked to join the cast of "Scream 4."
Aimee Teegarden is no longer a juvenile actress, she took a break from filming "Scream 4" to celebrate her 21st birthday on Saturday 16th October 2009 with family and friends. The ultimate Sin City Birthday Bash was held at the Tabu Ultra Lounge at the MGM in Las Vegas.
She was given VIP treatment and DJ Loczi played a funky version of 50 Cents "In Da Club" and a three-tier birthday cake was delivered to her table. Friends and family cheered as she pushed back her blonde hair and blew out the candles standing in the pink frosted icing.
In 2011 she is due to play Nova in the film "Prom".
